Once every two years Kitsap County Solid Waste holds a household hazardous waste collection on Bainbridge Island. In 2023 it will be held in Poulsbo on a date in June, tbd.
If you can’t hold onto something that long, take it to the Kitsap County Household Hazardous (HHW) Collection Facility.

What is household hazardous waste? If the product label has one or more of the following words on it, chances are you should take your product to Kitsap’s HHW facility.

  • danger
  • caution
  • flammable
  • warning
  • toxic
  • poison
  • combustible

For a list of what is and is not accepted, go here. Fire extinguishers are not on either list, but they are accepted.

Empty containers belong in the garbage.

And congratulations to Kitsap County Solid Waste’s Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) team, which received a 2021 “Program Excellence” award from the North American Hazardous Materials Management Association!
